Everything Back to the Future II Predicted

Happy Back to the Future day! That’s right, today October 21st, 2015 is the day Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future II. While many of the predictions made by the movie were clearly meant to be funny and whimsical, it’s still fun to look back to see what Robert Zemekis and the film actually were successful in predicting. So, let us all take a look at the past to see how our present was predicted when it was still long in the future. Still with me? Okay, cool. Hoverboards There is much debate on whether or not hoverboards officially exist. But there shouldn’t be because they do! Check it out. The real question is, would they have existed by 2015 (or at all for that matter) if not for the movie Back to the Future?…Mind Blown.   Nike Self Lacing Shoes This “prediction” came true with the help of Nike designing and releasing the shoes to honor the film this year.   Pepsi Perfect Much like the Nike Self Lacing Shoes, Pepsi …

Coca Cola sings to the Blue Jays

Tomorrow, the Toronto Blue Jays start their post-season against the Texas Rangers. And for the first time since 1993….the team is actually good. Toronto has always been a hotspot for sports, but sadly hasn’t had a winning team (in any sport minus Canadian football) since the Jays won back-to-back World Series in 92/93. To celebrate the teams World Series victory¬†of the 90s, Coca Cola ran television advertisements where they sang a song about Toronto’s winners… Cleverly, Coke has rehashed their nostalgic tune for the 2015 Jays who just might go all the way. And even if they don’t, we are “proud of our Blue Jays.”

Coke Salutes 1993 World Series Blue Jays

Back in 1992 and 1993 Coke made commemorative cans to celebrate the World Series wins by the Toronto Blue Jays. I’m sure they did this for every team but living in Canada I only saw these cans. in 1993 Coke ran a commercial congratulating The Blue Jays on the win. It is terrible and I’m pretty sure they ran it minutes after the Jays won which blew my mind as a 10 year old. I don’t know why (maybe because they are my favourite team and it was the last time they won a World Series or even made the playoffs for that matter) but this song has stuck in my head some 20+ years later. Feel free to let us know if they do this every year for each team. I hope they do because it’s pretty cool and not to brag but I still have my can from 1992.
